I agree with Thomas.

The EHR is about
subjective statements,

at a point in time,
in a certain context,
about an aspect  (state, event, process, …)
of the Patient system (person and its environments).

We need to remember that we are not generally trying to model all that complexity, but just the general structures for what needs to be written down at specific points in time by admin and / or clinical staff. Those 'notes' need to be designed generically enough that they will cope with all these variations. Making most of the data items optional is a basic way to do some of that...
